Nadal needs to be called out for his incessant time wasting.

    45 seconds between points is excessive.

    There is a rule for a reason, and clearly nadal exceeds this regularly.

    My reasoning:
    the rule states that 25 seconds is the max time between points, yet nadal constantly uses 30-45 seconds between points.
    If a player foot faults by 10 cm, does he get called? yes
    if a player footfaults by 5 cm , does he get called? yes
    if a player footfaults by 1 cm does he get called? yes
    rules are rules and 25 seconds is a rule.
    SO WHY DOES NADAL GET TO CONSTANTLY EXCEED THIS TIME LIMIT???:evil::evil::evil::evil:

    They should install a 25 second clock that restarts at the end of each point much like in basketball. You lose the point if you fail to server (hit the ball with your racquet) in that time.

    Funny how the *******s leap in here to defend their god... Expect gj011 to pop in here aswell as Djok is a time-wasting cheat aswell.

    I do agree something should be done, but the umpires generally don't have the balls to say anything.
    I guess when you consider what Nadal and Djokovic bring to the game in terms of bums on seats, nobody in authority wants to rock the boat.
    Someone needs to man up and do the right thing though.

    I agree the rule needs to be enforced. But it's unfair to mention only Nadal, nor is it fair to blame him.

    First, Djokovic takes as much, if not more time, than Nadal.

    Second, it's not their fault. It's up to the umpires to enforce the rules and keep the match fair to both players.
